Children are the hope for tomorrow. But let’s face it, hope just doesn’t sell. However, good looks are a hot commodity in any market. So the http://www.beautifulpeople.com/ website has launched an egg and sperm service so that even ‘ugly people’ can bring good looking children into the world. Just purchase some seed from one someone on http://www.beautifulpeople.com/ then you can sleep easy knowing that your little bundle of joy will grow up to be a hottie! And isn’t that the hope of every parent.
Okay, does anyone else find this a bit creepy?
The social networking website http://www.beautifulpeople.com/ describes itself as an “elite online club, where every member works the door” — that is, users can join only after enough members vote them “beautiful” during the 48 hours after their profile is uploaded. In fact, it enforced their strict ban on ugly people by exiling about 5,000 members for packing on the pounds during the 2009 holiday season. So would this mean that they would have to recall the eggs and sperm from those beauties that have fallen from grace?
I think Stephen Colbert sums it up best in his hilarious segment on beautiful people selling their fertility:
“Order today because all children are beautiful in the eyes of the Lord, but down here on Earth we’ve got higher standards.”
Watch the whole clip here – very funny!
